One of the best options in Polanco

My husband is Japanese and sometimes we want some good Japanese food here in Mexico. If we don't feel like driving we tend to come to Murakami. It is probably the 2nd best Japanese restaurant in Polanco, but the Japanese place in the Hyatt is more expensive so that is why we come here. The food is... read more

I've been to Murakami perhaps 60 times or more since 2006. It's become a favourite. I used to go when I lived in Mexico City and now I try to go at least once every time I'm back. It's hard to find a restaurant that meets the three "B's. Murakami does so consistently. It is as they say in Spanish:... More

Simply authentic Japanese food, all customers besides me, Japanese people. Best relationship price/quality in Mexico City. Umami at Polanco's heart at affordable prices!

We loved the food but the atmosphere is to snobish plus you need to take several wallets to pay for the tasting menu (defenitly worth it). But makes it a place to go once in a blue moon. I prices dropped 30% I would be going once a month probablly as the quailty of the food is excelent.

This is the kind of restaurants that are pretentiousness, clean and with an authentic cuisine, it called to my attention so many Japanese people attending and for a good reason, food is great! Service is rather slow, they have a great home-Sake and Japanese beer (I loved it!), price/performance is sky-high!

This is where you would find Japanese executives having their lunch in the heart of Polanco. We have been twice, and while the second time was not as great as the first, it is generally one of the best value-for-money Japanese food places you can find in Polanco. The sashimi is pretty consistent and not too expensive, and what is... More
